Mastering your own Mind: Will, Intuition, and our Relationship with our Higher Self

In order to learn how to master your own mind you have to form a working concept of it in practical terms. In order to do this we have to look at each aspect of the mind and how it functions as a dynamic part of the whole mind. What we commonly refer to as the “mind” is actually threefold in nature and operates simultaneously on different planes of existence as what we could think of as parallel dimensions that are interactive and interdependent in nature, just as what we call the material plane is three dimensions that are interlaced to form what we perceive as a unified, single dimension. The three dimensions of the material plane are accompanied by a fourth dimension of “time and space”, or space-time that’s non-material and purely invisible in nature as a mysterious force that “holds the material world together” as a unified living system. While the mind exists as what we can think of as “spheres of consciousness” that are multidimensional in nature, represented by the Monad in Sacred Geometry, dual aspects of the mind exist simultaneously on the same plane and are what act together in harmony with the Higher Mind to produce the entire reality of the lower material plane.

The Three Complementary Aspects of the Mind

The three primary aspects of the mind that function to create and operate within the material plane are referred to as the Higher Mind or Super-conscious, the subconscious, and the self-conscious mind, with the two latter ones making up what we call the lower mind of the personality. The Higher mind exists on a higher dimension that’s complementary to this one and when it descends into the lower plane it divides into dual and complementary aspects of itself that are necessary in order to self-create by creating an outer corresponding reality in which it “experiences itself”. All creation on the lower, material plane comes through the harmony of both the subconscious (feminine) and self-conscious (masculine) aspects of the same mind being directed and informed by the Higher Mind of the human Soul. It’s only by realizing the natural relationship that exists between the triune aspects of the same mind or soul that we can learn how to consciously cooperate in creating our self and our outer reality, which is formed as a projection of the self as our “perception”. All perception of the outer reality is formed by the individual mind as a primary form of self-expression. This is demonstrated in the symbol used for the Monad as a “dot within a circle”, or the brain that creates the outer membrane as an expansion of itself.

The most fundamental way of harmonizing the subconscious and self-conscious mind is by learning how to control your thoughts in term of random and repetitive thoughts that run through your mind in an automatic, habitual, and uncensored fashion. All habitual and repetitive thought patterns are produced by the subconscious mind out of memory of some form, whether from actual events of our life or as something we were taught. When we spend most of our time engaged in “thinking” as a form of running memories of various sorts through our mind in a repetitive fashion, we are not only being controlled and determined by our lower, uncreative nature, but we’re living out of a primarily unconscious state where we’re “acting on ourselves” to “inform ourselves” out of memories of the past and thereby only maintain habitual patterns and dynamics of some sort.

       This is the most predominant way we create the present out of the past and can predict the future as a continuation of the past. The subconscious mind has the ability to “create material reality”, yet it operates only out of memory or the thoughts and ideas it’s “given” as suggestions that provide the patterns and themes for creating. It’s passive and receptive in nature and lacks a will as the ability to discriminate and make decisions that provide the means for creating in new and unique ways. The subconscious is the same aspect of the mind we share with the animal kingdom that forms the personality of the body as a part of the “group mind” of a species, and lacks any “individuality” in the true sense, which only comes through the creative “will” that acts to impregnate the subconscious mind with “original thoughts” not derived from personal memory. The subconscious works through the faculty of the imagination and forms a reality out of whatever idea it’s given as a form of suggestion. It only acts to “absorb” and assimilate the thoughts that exist all around it, and doesn’t actually produce the thoughts themselves as ideas, but merely transforms them into material form as the reality of the meaning of the thoughts.

Most people spend their entire lifetime locked into the subconscious realm of the lower self where their thoughts are impulsive, repetitive, based on replaying memories or the past, blindly driven by passions and desires or some sort, or the result of thoughts given to them by others. All original thought and the creations that come from them come as the result of “will”, whether from our self or others. The will is the active component of the mind that acts to seed the passive aspect of the mind, which births it as an outer reality. Thought seeds the imagination which forms our perception and stimulates emotions in response to our thoughts that provide a pattern and instructions for corresponding actions. All behaviors are emotionally driven, and the emotions themselves are produced in response to our thoughts and whatever we place our attention on. All of our actions and deeds create outwardly producing consequences as reactions that form our karma.

Thought and the Creative Power of the Spoken Word

All thought comes as a form of inner dialogue as words spoken silently to ourselves that influences and shapes our perception of reality. Original thoughts as unique ideas impregnate the imagination of the personality with a form of suggestion that it develops into a possible reality as the means for expressing outwardly and manifesting a corresponding experience of reality. When we speak our thoughts outwardly we engage the imagination of other people in the same way, and they cooperate in co-creating it with us as a joint experience. As we speak words, both internally and outwardly, we literally act to call forth the reality of our words. How we think and speak are largely subconscious in nature and take place automatically. Our vocabulary comes predominately through unconscious processes of association. How we think and talk in terms of our sentences, phrases, and our style and figure of speech, all take shape below the self-conscious level. Words not only act to define and shape ideas, but also embody the imagery of the meaning of the words giving form to an ongoing stream of consciousness. As we think we imagine the reality of our thoughts as a form of replaying memories to produce a new variation, we act to provide the subconscious with the means of generating a corresponding outer experience of the same nature.

In the esoteric sense it’s the celestial forces of archetypes that work on the four elements that cause external manifestation. Stars (suns) influence the archetypal forces of the human psyche that populate the astral plane that surrounds us as the atmosphere that we draw our thoughts from in a primarily unconscious and automatic fashion. The celestial field of Astral (star) Light (energies of the sun) as the “unified field” of the collective unconscious, or Akashic field that all human thoughts and deeds are “recorded on” as a mental impression, much like light imprints an image on photographic paper, is the “field of information” as memory of a species that populate human thought in an unconscious manner in exactly the same way instinct works for the animal and plant kingdom.

While many of us have been taught to believe that thought is generated by the brain, it’s not, the brain only acts as a “receiver and transducer” for thought as consciousness that it absorbs from the space around it. Matter only serves as a vehicle or instrument for consciousness to actively express, and has no consciousness of its own or ability to generate consciousness outside of what it acts to attain through resonance. The Akashic field, Astral Plane, unified field of consciousness or information, the collective unconscious, mass consciousness, instinct, scalar waves, quantum wave-function, and dark energy are all terms used to try and describe the same mysterious invisible forces that exist all around us that carry information as memory that’s utilized to produce the consciousness of the soul and body. These are the forces that exist above the level of the personality that act to populate the imagination and provide the means for the perception and ability of the individual to create themselves and their experience of reality.

       Our self-conscious, intellectual mind, the one most think of when we use the term “mind”, is the intellect that has the ability to use the power of thought to deliberately seed the imagination with the reality of that thought. This is the agency of the mind that has supervising authority over itself and dominion over the elemental world through mental powers. All material form is influenced, shaped, and operated using the power of thought as imagined form that stimulates emotion in response to it, which alters the chemistry of the body producing a “unified state” that matches the reality of the thought. The body is an electrical mechanism that’s operated through electrical impulses of various sorts as information in its energetic, vibratory state that stimulate whole biological processes as a synchronized chain of association.

The mind exists as a sphere or field of information, represented by the Monad, as a rotating and pulsating electromagnetic field called a Torus. This field functions through the principle of respiration, drawing in air (intelligence) of the invisible atmosphere, metabolizing and synthesizing it, then exhaling or emanating re-mixed air as an electromagnetic flow of intelligence propelled by a life-force energy that’s self-perpetuating and self-sustaining. This operates in the same way we produce thoughts as memories that create our experiences and provide a form of self-programming as a feed-back loop that’s continuous in nature. This torus as a circular flow of spiraling electromagnetic energy is the force that circulates our blood carrying information as chemical messengers that nourishes and vitalizes the body, in-forming the DNA of the blood and cellular structure simultaneously. Thought as perception and the emotions produced by them “inform” our DNA, altering the electromagnetic field it produces as the means of structuring matter, and is the means by which we transform the body by regenerating it to a new form. Not a form of an entirely different nature, but as a variation or modified version that either upgrades or degrades, depending on what type of though is employed.

Thought, which is also invisible, produces emotion as life-force or magnetic fluid of the Astral plane, both of which exist outside of the body as waves that propagate through a field that acts as a carrier wave, stimulate, produce, transform, regulate, and sustain the chemistry of the body. The body is an electromagnetic mechanism that’s programmed and driven through electrical impulses that appear out of “thin air”, out of nowhere as a form of inspiration, intuition, or emotional charge. Once an electrical impulse is received and absorbed through sympathetic induction, it sets an entire series of biological processes into motion that alter and animate material form. These electrical impulses as vibration have patterns inherent in them as memory that are transmitted and received from both the material plane of emotion and the higher planes of original thought. We’re either electrically running our own mind-body system as an enclosed system through a constant feed-back loop of repetitive thought and emotions, or by taking in and developing the thoughts and emotions of others, or by becoming a passive receptor for thoughts of the higher plane of universal archetypes as the Higher Will.

Receptivity and Will

While many believe their “will” is something that originates in their personality, much like the idea made popular by the movie “The Secret” as the means of manifesting material possessions and circumstances, and there’s certainly no denying that willpower is a part of our inherent equipment, yet the idea of a true “personal will” doesn’t exist. All volition of a seemingly personal nature comes as the synthesis of innumerable interrelated cosmic influences coming together as a focus point “within us” at an exact moment in time. This is why Jesus said “of myself I am nothing”, and that everything came from the Father. The true Will of an original and individual nature only comes from our Higher Self on a higher plane where we act as the receiver and translator for it to produce what appears like a personal creation. We have to still our mind of our habitual thoughts and personal agendas, of always wanting and craving, in order to tune into and receive the intuition of a Higher Power.

The human personality serves only as a vessel for cosmic forces to express through. The more we tame and calm the random unconscious thoughts motivated by passions and desires, the more freely the Primal Will behind all manifestation can find expression through us, which comes as a form of intuition and inspired thought, and is always of a universal nature in the sense that it not only works for our higher good, but for the higher good of everyone involved. It doesn’t operate to satisfy desires born out of our personal illusions of happiness for ourselves, but out of a more universal intention that operates according to the bigger picture involved and by incorporating the will of everyone involved to a congruent means. We can learn from observing our experiences that the true strength of volition is measured to the exact degree of our willingness to “let life” find unobstructed manifestation through us.

Our true Will comes to us from a higher, non-personal source as an insight into or realization around something as a silent thought or inner voice that produces a mental impression that we look through that’s similar to reflection on glass. This type of “willingness” is developed through purposeful concentration as a form of ongoing meditation. We become the vehicle for our Higher Will by keeping our body in a relaxed state, making the mind passive by stilling all active thoughts, becoming fully present in the moment while forming an awareness of the limitless powers inherent in the space around us, while cultivating the progressive freedom to allow those powers to express through us as our primary purpose. This is the practical means of using the mind in the manner it’s intended to be used as the means of exercising dominion over the elements of the material world. When our mind is run by impulses, constant thinking driven by emotions, passions, desires, and urges, the elemental world is governing us and using our will to create through.

The Power of Suggestion to Produce Reality

We must explain and impress upon our subconscious mind over and over through a form of suggestion, that it’s the vehicle for the Universal Will. In order to be effective we have to base those suggestions on reason that’s married to compelling emotions. The subconscious is the creative aspect of the mind in terms of producing material reality, and is the means through which all designs, plans, and inventions come to us as an inner voice or thought, that forms the visual reality of those thoughts in the imagination. All true creativity comes through intuition as the reception of original ideas from an outside source that are comprehended in the mind’s eye by forming a concept or internal representation of them as a possible reality (not born out of personal memory). The subconscious is the means through which cosmic forces of the universal mind enter into our personal field and form the basis for all of our personal creations. The subconscious then reflects the ideas given to it in the imagination as mental impressions where the self-conscious mind becomes aware of them as an inspired thought or form of intuition.

Thought and speech are potent in stimulating and molding the subconscious response. This also produces profound changes in our physical structure because the subconscious is also the consciousness of the body as the body-building and changing agent. Our thoughts as imaginary ideas that elicit an emotional response, literally reprogram the DNA of the body (brain within each cell), transforming us to correspond to the meaning of our thoughts, making us more able to transform and express cosmic forces as personal activities. These cosmic forces exist and are active in the atmosphere (air = the element of intelligence and thought) all around us without our direct awareness because they operate through the subconscious mind, which reflects them in the imagination for the self-conscious mind to become aware of as thoughts that it mistakes for being “self-generated” because they come from within.

       All truth in terms of universal laws and the operations involved in all natural processes can be realized through deepened forms of self-realization. Self-examination will reveal to you in very plain terms that even the least of your personal thoughts and activities are a particular manifestation of a phase of the sum-total of cosmic influences all coming together at a specific point in time as a synchronistic stream of consciousness. Everything we have ever done in the past has led up to this moment in time. All personal thoughts and manifestations come as the result of past memories and actions repeated in a similar fashion in the present. The self-conscious mind which is usually driven by the personality isn’t capable of an original thought, and simply operates in the same fashion as the subconscious mind that births it by replaying memory of some kind. Original thought that’s truly creative and innovative in terms of providing the means for creating new forms of reality comes only through our ability to act as a passive receptor for consciousness from our Higher Self as intuition. It operates by the same principles that govern instinct.

Complete receptivity produced by relaxing the body and stilling the activities of the concrete mind is the secret to the most powerful manifestations of Will. Receptivity can intentionally be produced and increased using language as a formulated suggestion given to the subconscious by the self-conscious as a directed thought. Our normal, everyday thoughts are at once being produced in an impulsive way by our subconscious, which is repetitive in nature and produced out of memory and learned behaviors, while simultaneously acting to program or inform the subconscious as to what to create more of. All “original thought” comes to us as intuition from a higher source that’s outside of our sphere of consciousness that can only be “absorbed” and drawn into our mind when in a passive and receptive state. There’s nothing more powerful and beneficial to our creative ability and will than cultivating the ability to meditate, stilling our thoughts while in a completely relaxed state, and entering into a deep state of concentration as being fully present within our sphere of awareness. In this sense, all magic as true creativity lies in the Will and imagination.

Alchemy and the Process of Initiation – Transformation and Growth through Challenges and Ordeals

The ancient art known as “Alchemy” dealt with the idea of soul purification and self-creation through masterful use of the will. It works through Universal Laws that govern all of the material world as a primary form of mind-over-matter, or the mind’s ability to willfully direct the behaviors of the body (subconscious) and determine what type of energies as states of consciousness we take on, become one with, and bring into expression as a way of creating ourselves by way of them. It works through the same laws that govern the chemistry of the body, where, when two or more substances are combined, they form a chemical reaction as biological processes of transformation. All change and transmutation comes from new combinations of some kind that form new relationships as a unique variable that alters it from its original state.

The alchemical process acts first to “purify” the substance (soul) to be transformed through various forms of changing the solution by filtering and separation, that identify and remove all impurities acquired through previous combinations and amalgamations, returning it to its virgin state. This process takes repeated steps of breaking down existing conditions and established patterns as active qualities, refining them through a process of distillation, and removing all corrupt aspects as weaknesses, vices, and vulnerabilities. Once returned to its original state, the true aspects of its character can then fully express and be developed into strengths as the means of true self-creation that comes from self-awareness, self-knowledge, and intentional actions and deeds. We can then act “on ourselves” to develop ourselves in very distinct ways by choosing what qualities we want to intentionally embody, become one with, and bring into expression as a way of apprehending those qualities and developing our character to include them.

       The Law of the Tetragrammaton or Tetrad (4), demonstrates this process and method of “becoming” through the Dyad (Vesica Pisces) as the blending together of two energy fields, joined at the center, where outside energies serve to stimulate and awaken those same energies in us, and together in the overlapping area, form an interference pattern as the reconfiguration of that pattern in both to form a new variation. This new variation of the same quality and idea, births the Triad as its offspring as an inner or imagined idea that provides the subconscious pattern for producing its outer equivalent as a projection or reflection, birthing its correspondence as an outer expression or experience of reality, represented by the Tetrad.

This same principle is demonstrated in the most primary law of all, the Law of Vibration, which states that whenever we vibrate in harmony with something else, we act to magnetically draw it into us through sympathetic induction, blending with it, and both of our complementary, yet variable vibrations influence each other and begin vibrating in-sync, forming coherence as a new vibratory rate that together forms a new pattern. This law forms the very foundation as a guided process for not only realizing “how” we’re being shaped all the time by whatever we associate and interact with energetically, but for how to engage in and use that same process intentionally as a means of developing ourselves.

The same process of returning a solid substance to a fluid state, purifying it by breaking down and dissolving all impurities and corruption, then reforming it through new combinations, occurs naturally in life anytime we’re faced with challenges, ordeals, major life crisis, and extreme forms of hardship and loss, where we’re forced to reevaluate our life and values, and embrace our identity with a full sense of awareness. It’s easy to see that the only time we change or grow in some way, is when we have to in order to overcome or negotiate a new situation that presents a problem or unfamiliar territory. It’s only when we’re taken out of our comfort zone, our ordinary conditions, circumstances, and situations that we’ve become accustomed to, and thrown into brand new, unexpected situations that we’re forced to respond by acting in a new and deliberate way. Where we go through the process in our mind of not knowing what to do, no previous experience or memory to draw off of or repeat, and we go through a decision process that requires us to willfully act it out, usually going against our own natural and habitual tendencies. Only in these moments are we truly self-creating in a fully aware manner. We’re initiating and producing our own reality that brings us into a new feeling and sense of ourselves. We embody qualities that we’ve never really expressed or developed before, and they transform us as a result. While in these moments, we’re back into a position, often for the first time as an adult, of having to make conscious decisions in every instance of what we’re going to do, how we’re going to be, and what we’re going to act intentionally to create.

        The process of initiation in the ancient mysteries, prepared the initiate by putting them in extremely challenging situations that were designed to invoke extreme fear and a deep sense of insecurity, which revealed their will to either give-up or give-in, or to persevere and push through difficulties, developing great mental fortitude through the process. The object was to not only become fearless, but to also be able to remain calm, highly focused, clear minded, and confident in extreme situations of all kinds. This came through the ability to not allow the energy challenging you to enter into your sphere of consciousness and alter your state of mind to match and be “like it”. This is what you might call a form of reverse engineering of the initial process of alteration through “combining and coupling” represented by the Dyad. In this process you deflect the energy, keeping it outside of you, refrain from reacting to it in any manner while staying centered and grounded internally, and in doing so, you neutralize the energy and act instead to influence and direct it through your mental projections and actions.

All of life evolves out of various combinations as the relationships of complementary opposites that act on each other to transform each other to be more alike. Every person or being that we meet or interact with, is acting naturally just through the nature of the interaction to make us like them, and we act to make them like us. This is what all relationships are, a natural method of transformation through adaptation and modification that (re)forms a new whole as a variation. This process is always going on between us and everything around us all the time at the subconscious, unaware level of the mind. We are constantly absorbing, integrating, assimilating, and becoming “like” the energy around us as a basic form of evolution that keeps us in the same state and condition as the environment we exist in, function as a part of, and have to survive in. Once we fully understand this law and fact, we have the tools necessary to work by way of that same law to consciously direct and influence the operation.

All energy is a form of consciousness that exists as “qualities” and feelings that naturally produce certain types of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. The spiritual-energetic world exists in a parallel dimension to the physical as a hierarchical structure. Whatever exists on a “lower plane” is fully contained within the higher plane as its foundation. The higher plane, which contains the entire lower plane, is what acts to govern and sustain that plane. The invisible plane of energy, which is consciousness, is what shapes matter as essence into form through imagined thoughts. An idea introduced into the mind as a frequency or feeling, stimulates and initiates a thought process that forms it into an image of some kind as a reality in the mind’s eye (3rd eye), that’s further developed and evolved through a narration as internal dialogue. The entire physical, manifest world is produced and animated by consciousness as thought, intention, and imagination. And it’s through this same process, by working with the laws of the higher plane governing the lower plane that we direct and work with the energies of the lower plane.

       Once we return to a virgin state through the process of being broke down through constant challenges and crisis, where all illusions that prevented us from seeing ourselves and life as it really is dissolve, revealing only what’s real and eternal and unchangeable, we’re in the position to not only take over control of our own development, but can develop the necessary capacities of the mind that prevent us from being influenced, altered, and corrupted by others. All energy as states that produce emotional realities can be directed and brought into a submissive state by the will. We can control and regulate all energy within our own mental sphere (immediate surroundings) by exercising our will to direct it. This is not the same thing as “imposing our will on others” in an attempt to control and influence them to think, feel, and behave in a certain way, but rather to exercise full dominion over ourselves and our own mind and soul. Alchemy doesn’t concern itself with the idea or need to somehow change others, but only with the mastery necessary to become fully self-determined and self-controlled. The best way we have of influencing others is by controlling our own state and behaviors in how we interact with them, which influences them to “match us”.

Once we realize that our mind exists as a spherical field of energy that not only permeates and surrounds our body, encapsulating it, but also extends out into the environment around us quite some distance, and is always mingling with and taking on the energy of everything else, we can begin acting deliberately to regulate our energy field by using our will and imagination to determine what we allow in to become a part of us, and what we keep out or deflect, so it doesn’t affect or alter us. If we learn how to tune into the energy in any situation and become aware of how it interacts with us to transform us through resonance, we can learn how to “sense it” by feeling it while imagining its quality, motives, and behavior, while keeping it “outside of us”. We can then realize that people who are willfully projecting through some form of intensity, and those who live out of and are always expressing and projecting strong emotions of some sort, can only “enter into us” and infect us, becoming a part of our mind, if we choose to let them.

Energetic interactions take place naturally at the subconscious level, where, even though we realize how strongly we’re affected by them, we don’t realize what’s actually going on in the objective sense. We don’t realize that by becoming aware of what operates at the unconscious level, we can learn how to work with it consciously (with awareness). We can imagine an invisible barrier around us as the outer edge of our mental sphere where ideas and emotions being projected at us by others are allowed to reflect and “spread out” so we can see them as if “looking through a transparent image”, where we can “read them accurately” while preventing them from entering our mind and altering our state accordingly. By practicing this, we can remain calm, centered, and unaffected while in the midst of extremes and intensity of any kind. By remaining neutral in the presence of projected emotions we act to neutralize and diffuse them. But most importantly, we exercise the ability to regulate our own mind and body. This is a key ability of vital importance in terms of intentional self-creation.

        In this same manner we can consciously choose energy that we do want to blend with and become one with as a means of intentionally acquiring the same qualities. While we tend to use terms like “acquire”, “apprehend”, or” get”, to describe the energy and consciousness we embody as a means of developing qualities in ourselves, the fact is we don’t ever “get energy” as qualities “from” something else outside of us, but they act instead, through resonance, to “awaken” and bring into an active state those same qualities that are already “in” us. We then develop them through repetitive expression to become a prominent part of our character. Anything that we consistently develop through expression and interaction of some sort becomes a habit as second nature, which means we begin doing it naturally in an automatic fashion without direct awareness, having to think about it, or exerting intentional effort.

This same process of union as combining and coupling with someone or something else as the natural means of transforming and growing, is represented in what’s called the “chemical marriage” of Alchemy, as the relationship between the active and passive forces of the same mind and soul, and the conscious minds ability to direct, guide, and create by way of the subconscious mind as a unified and harmonious act. It’s learning how to make an adjustment through an understanding of sympathy and antipathy, attraction and repulsion, magnetizing and projecting. By learning how to use our own personal will to seed and work to create through our subconscious, we create both ourselves and our reality in an intentional and purposeful manner.

       Likewise, the burning away of impurities as character flaws, unconscious complexes and tendencies, incorrect evaluations and calculations, or bad habits we developed as unconscious conditioning, we can resolve our bad (self-destructive) karma and create a more positive and beneficial form of karma. Redemption comes by first bringing what’s operating in our life unconsciously into conscious awareness where we can not only see what we’re doing and why, but we can also begin working with it consciously to resolve it. All manifestations produced by actions can be cancelled out and brought back into a balanced state through equilibration of opposites. It’s only by realizing and owning our own part in things that we see clearly what we’re doing in any situation that acting to co-create it, whether passively or actively, that we can willfully change our own perceptions and behaviors. It’s by counteracting an idea that we transform it by reformulating it, bringing what’s out of balance (emphasized) and being done unconsciously back into balance through awareness that brings realization. The realization alone is what acts to dissolve and transform the illusion. To redeem ourselves from an attitude and the actions that result from it, is to form and embody the opposite attitude and action, and repeat it consistently until it becomes automatic and something that we do without thinking about it. We can only be transformed and evolved by what becomes a habit as an essential part of our nature (through reprogramming our subconscious).

Those of us who came into this life with many difficulties, challenges, and ordeals to overcome, are naturally walked through a process of initiation as soul purification, often without realizing it. Others intentionally choose a hard life because there’s a desire in them to meet and overcome difficulties. Still others refuse to compromise their dignity in a world that teaches conformity at the cost of morality, and in doing so, welcome the consequences of integrity, which can often seem brutal. All growth and development, in the sense of being the soul’s only true goal and purpose in life, is considered an act of love from a higher, spiritual perspective. It’s only when we’re challenged and overwhelmed and we reign as victor, that we’re exalted. The greater our fall, the more exalted our rising. It’s only when we push through tremendous odds, and when faced with devastation and wrought with unimaginable grief, in those darkest moments when we’re forced to reach down into our unknown depths of our self to find our true source of light and power that we ascend to the higher rungs by virtue of our own volition.

Understanding the Musical Nature of the Mind as a Vibratory Frequency

The Mind as a Frequency Creates a Consistent Experience of Reality

waveslight

When we use the term “musical” in this context, we’re not referring to music in the ordinary sense, but rather of the laws that govern music, which are the primary laws of vibration. Everything in the universe is energy vibrating at different frequencies. These frequencies are all interwoven and form a greater frequency as a form of symphonic orchestration or ecological system called “life”. All frequencies as a dimension, exist as an octave or range of the same “type” of vibration from a lower to a higher that comes as a growth or building process. Once a vibration reaches the highest point in an octave, it shifts to the next higher octave where the beginning note or vibration as an accumulation or summation, forms the base or foundation as the lowest point in the next octave, which begins a new growth process within that higher range or dimension. A simple dimension is comprised of a scale that’s made up of three octaves (stages), as interwoven and interdependent scales or levels of the same overall dimension as a harmonious creation or coherent reality. This 3 in 1 law, is inherent in every aspect of what we call material life.

In a scale or range of vibration, which is comprised of 7 notes, aspects, or stages, the highest note is the unification or summation of all the preceding notes of which it’s comprised of as an accumulative process. The higher we go in vibration, the more unified and holistic we become. The highest vibration in a scale contains all the vibrations or tones within that scale. So as we move from lower to higher, we move from singular to unified, from a “personal self” to a more “universal self”. Likewise, in these three levels of the same overall reality, also referred to as the body, mind, and spirit, the body is the lowest (singular) vibration, that forms a personal identity as an individual (body identification), the mind is a more expanded reality that includes all of our local or contained material reality, and the spirit includes not only all of humanity as a cohesive reality, but all of life as an accumulated or greater whole comprised of numerous individuals. So the higher our minds vibration, the more universal we become in our identity, and the more we move away from personal and selfish perceptions, agenda’s, and tendencies.

fabric of space

Energy as vibration, is a form of consciousness that has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it that forms a distinct pattern as a series of smaller interwoven patterns that are all harmonious in nature and of the same frequency. This energetic pattern as a certain vibration or quality of consciousness, forms our individual mind as a paradigm or mental “model of the world”. Out of our paradigm as a pattern comes a reality that’s of the same pattern with the same self-organizing ability that reorders the elements of our outer environment to match the pattern of our inner environment as our mind or invisible aspect. Therefore our mind, as the invisible pattern of our vibratory frequency, forms our perceptual lens (we look “though” it), which forms the reality we see and experience as a personal creation or expression (projection) of our paradigm.

All of life as external, outer elements, exist in a purely “potential state” of all the frequencies of the material world, as consciousness itself is universal, and all inclusive as infinite. Our mind, always vibrating at a specific frequency or range of vibration, reforms the outer reality of pure consciousness and infinite possibilities, by resonating with it. Through resonance, we activate or bring to the foreground (conceive of), what matches our vibration, while deactivating or returning to an inactive, passive state, what doesn’t match our vibration. In this way, we reformulate the outer elements by organizing them into the configuration of our mind’s pattern, enhancing and embellishing the selected features, and then interpret the active features to fit into our story about them, as our mental pattern or “theme” for creating reality. It’s not that we actually “create what we see” as an actual manifestation, but rather through a form of natural or unconscious choice as an activating mechanism. Whatever we activate with our attention, we give life to.

Just placing our attention on something, transforms it as a compliance to our frequency as a pattern, that forms a thematic reality, by turning on some aspects, while turning off others, determining what expresses and what doesn’t, following the same laws as DNA. How something appears outwardly is based on how it’s arranged inwardly by the mind of the individual. Whatever we place out attention on and think about, we transform to be “like” us, or of the same reality as a frequency. We infect (sympathetic induction) and effect (vibrate) everything just by thinking about it. All matter is impregnated and animated by the consciousness of the individual being directed and projected at it. Our consciousness enters into (resonates) the matter of the material world around us, and gives it the life it has as being of the same level and quality of consciousness. What’s being observed, and the mind doing the observing, are apart of the same event. The mind has the ability to reshape the material world to match its frequency by simply perceiving it through it’s model, and then shaping it further by continuing to think about it.

Our frequency as our personal consciousness, creates as an expression on three levels simultaneously, as we self-express through the very nature of our perception, we shape ourselves (create our self-image as our identity), other people (to be of the same nature as we are), and the “way the world is”, through the same pattern as a cohesive reality. We create our reality as a story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves about things, while simultaneously sensing ourselves through our own experiences, and becoming identified with them. In this way we’re always in the process of creating ourselves through an unconscious (automatic) level of self-expression, as resonating with the same vibratory pattern in everything else. Resonance takes place naturally and so we don’t realize what’s happening or why. We don’t fully realize how it is that we’re acting to create our own reality through purely energetic (spiritual) means as our conception of it. When we hear the comment that we all “manifest” our reality, we think it means we literally produce matter itself, rather than realizing we merely reformulate it by resonating with it, which changes how it appears.

sacred-grove-background-fractal-art-174698

Matter itself is void of its own consciousness, and acts as the receptor for consciousness, which enters into it (sympathetic induction) and alters it. Matter is the magnetic (feminine) aspect of consciousness, and attention as directed consciousness the electric or active (masculine) aspect. Attention directs an active quality of consciousness into matter, which acts as the receptor or vehicle for the active force, which gives matter it’s qualities and characteristics, which animate it. The active force reshapes it into the pattern of the frequency and changes how it appears in the mind perceiving it. In this way we never actually change matter itself in the permanent sense, but rather how it appears to us. The outer appearance of things is a direct reflection of the consciousness inhabiting it and holding it together as a cohesive and congruent reality, which is literally produced by the mind itself. Matter exists much like consciousness, in a neutral and universal state, and shape shifts according to the consciousness that impregnates it and the mind that perceives it.

In order to change reality or how things appear to us, we have to change our mind as our mental paradigm or vibratory frequency, which is what’s giving it the appearance it takes on. By changing our mind, we change reality itself, and see the same thing in a new way. The outer world remains the same, but we see something entirely different in it. Our activities don’t change, but the consciousness we employ while doing them changes, and thereby, we experience the same activities in a new and different way. To change the outer, we have to change the inner that’s shaping it. The same mind perceives the same reality continuously and consistently.

The Pentagram – “Mind-over-Matter: Shaping Words into Realities”

vitruvian man
The pentagram is probably one of the better known symbols of Sacred Geometry, and also one of the most misunderstood. While many associate it to Witchcraft and Satanic Cults of various sorts, or see it as the sign representing the devil, in reality, it’s none of these, or perhaps all of these, depending on how you perceive them and whether or not you’re prone to superstition (believing in something we don’t understand). The most basic interpretation of this symbol is “personal power” as “mind-over-matter”. This is the mind’s ability to direct and shape the natural forces and the four elements that govern the physical realm, represented by the law of the Tetrad (4), which precedes it laying the foundation out of which it naturally emerges (laws unfold out of each other). The pentagram or pentad is the symbol of the number 5, and is represented by the five-pointed star. This is the “Star of the Magi”, as well as the symbol of the devil (lower nature), based on its positioning; upright with the single point in the ascendant position, or inverted with two points in the upper position. The “devil” in the case indicates the elemental s of the material world as governing or controlling the mind.

pentagram
The basic meaning that it represents is the mind’s ability to form and animate matter with consciousness (personality and identity). It’s the soul’s dominion over the 4 Elements as the phosphene substance or Astral Light of the material plane. This represents the Quintessence as the number 5 which is the number of the soul, which is also primarily of the Astral plane. It symbolizes the power of the imagination which has the ability to shape light into realities as internal images, and the soul (mind) which acts as the receptacle for Universal Light, which operates through the law of vibration, sympathetic induction and coherence, and acts to organize light (photons) into patterns as possible realities. This represents the soul’s ability of not only receiving and assimilating the images, reflections, and imprints contained in the Living Light – The Great Magnetic Agent – as “memories”, but also of “creating virtual memories” that can be used in place of actual memories to produce analogous realities as self-created experiences.

 
Like all laws and natural forces which exist in a fundamental state of polarity, and are “issued forth” in pairs as complementary opposites of the same operation that demonstrate a relationship, in order to properly understand the pentad (5), we have to look at it in relationship to not only the 4 or Tetrad which precedes and lays the foundation necessary to spontaneously birth it, but also the hexad (6) that emerges out of it, which is also symbolized as a star. If we think of these in terms of how they correspond to the chakra’s of the body (soul’s energetic anatomy), as the throat (5) and the 3rd eye (6), we can see that words as sound (whether silent as thought or spoken) are shaped into internal conceptualizations in the imagination. Words form the basis for analogous imagery. What we think we’re simultaneously imagining, and what we are imagining becomes the basis for what we say, talk about, or communicate to others. Thought as an imagined reality forms our “perceptual lens” and is what we “look through” that determines what we “see” in the outer world that corresponds to it as being of the same nature. The inner always provides the basis for the outer as a filtering system that the mind uses to organize the outer to be of the same nature or vibration as the inner.

“To speak is to create, to imagine is to see”

and the word was made flesh and walked among us

What we think as visual imagery and speak we actually create. Our words direct our imagination to form distinct images out of the words, which become the outer expression of inward imagining that projects and superimposes it onto the outer environment causing others to see the same sensory images. The words we speak are the images as patterns, and the emotion and attitude through which we speak them is the shaping mechanism that determines what memory we associate to it, and call forth in our mind as a means of developing the idea to be a proper vehicle of expression for that emotion. How we experience an idea is based on what feeling-emotion we attach to it. The image as a shape (outer reference) is the carrier-wave that transmits the emotion. An idea is always married to a feeling, which forms how we think about it, and how we adapt that idea to ourselves and our life circumstances by how we apply it in the moment, which modifies and re-configures it as a compliance.

 
The idea represented by the Tetragrammaton as the 4 Elements of the material plane, are the four lower points on the star that form a square, symbolizing the lower 4-dimensional plane, governed largely by instinct as memories of some sort. These four lower points as the Elements represent an idea (archetype or universal memory as a pattern), animated by a feeling-emotion (activating it), that forms a thought-process as a conceptualized internal representation of the idea, reshaping it as an adaptation to the mental paradigm of the individual as applied within their current life circumstances to produce an external reality as a personal experience that’s analogous to the internal experience. All of this, called the shaping of Astral Light as “thought-forms”, is performed within the faculty of the imagination (3rd eye). This imaginative ability is how the soul, as the astral mind, which is comprised of accumulated and integrated memories shapes the Astral Agent of phosphene-like Light into internal realities that become the basis for outer experiences.

Astral Light, also called terrestrial fluid, the Great Magnetic Agent, the Plastic Mediator, that is populated with the demons of the air, spirits of fire, phantoms of water, and the ghosts of the earth, all of which are invisible, ghost-like images as natural forces, are speaking of the same idea, they’re just using different terms to describe it. The pentagram represents the power of the spoken word (thought and speech) to shape images in the imagination, turning them into internal realities as living representations personalized by how the individual reshapes universal ideas (words) into a new variation filtered through and reorganized by their own paradigm (accumulated integrated memories). These images, formed in our imagination create “thought-forms” that are imprinted in our Astral Field or outer Mind (electromagnetic field surrounding and permeating our body), and are perceived by others as feelings and mental impressions, and are magnetic or attractive in nature.

 
Whatever we think about and internalize on a constant and regular basis with strong emotional content, we literally magnetize ourselves to. These electromagnetic thought-forms act to project and transmit as well as attract thoughts and ideas of the same nature in our outer world, while repelling anything that’s not of the same nature (form). We are literally “asking for” more of whatever we imagine and think about. Emotion acts as an amplifier, intensifying the signal, and is what directly connects us to everyone and everything around us. The emotions we’re experiencing at any given time are what we’re broadcasting and activating all around us, which are associated to analogous ideas that express and create more experiences that increase and give us more of that same feeling.

pentagram elementsThe star represents power over the lower world of Elementals, and when placed in a circle, which represents the Monad as the sphere of consciousness or mind-field of the soul (specialized pattern), contains and holds the Elements within it, where they are subservient to the will of the soul, which can use them as a creative tool and magnetizer for self-creating and producing self-designed experiences, formed in the imagination and superimposed or projected onto the outer environment creating and attracting corresponding elements that lend themselves to being shaped into the same type of patterns. All memories are created and replayed in the imagination, and are not based solely on actual experiences, but mostly out of imagined experiences that have been interpreted to make them mean something. Actual stored memories come out of events that have a strong emotional impact and form the “themes” that become basis of what we think about, and we propagate numerous “virtual” memories out of actual ones that are a pure fabrications of our imagination. But because they’re created in the same way, they produce the same affect, and they become a form of “self-programming”.

 
The pentad, which represents “regeneration”, also represents the phi relationship (3 + 2) as doubling and halving, where we manifest whatever is being emphasized, reproducing and multiplying it, growing and evolving our mental model through an accumulative process. This relationship is further demonstrated through the Fibonacci Sequence, which is based on reproduction as the present combined with the most recent memory of the past forms the basis for the future, again, corresponding to producing reality as a correlation of accumulative memory to produce endless variations of the same thematic idea. This idea of a basic set of memories integrated into a holistic pattern as a paradigm, forming the basis for propagating more memory of the same type as the means of self-creation and evolution, is the primary idea behind how the soul evolves through multiple lifetimes by repeating and creating out of the same basic set of memories.

star phi

How the pentagram is positioned, demonstrates the orientation in terms of what’s the governing factor. When positioned upright with the single triangle in the ascending position (top), it represents personal power as working consciously with the imagination to magnetize your self through the shaping of the elements. When reversed, with two points – triangles at the top (horns as division of the mind), and the single triangle or point at the bottom, represents the mind being controlled by the elements, and lacking power to control our own mind because we remain unconscious of our own true abilities, and use it in a haphazard way to create out of emotional and pleasure seeking states. Inverted represents being conditioned to automatic thoughts given to you by others, while using your imagination to think about the very thing you don’t want, and magnetizing yourself to it as a result. This symbolizes the most basic form of ignorance that spends its power magnetizing itself to its own imaginary fears and being controlled by others (through suggestion and emotions) while creating out of a primarily conditioned and reactive state.

 
An inverted Pentagram represents the “devil” if we understand the devil (“lived” spelled backwards) as being the thought-forms created by others that were born out of fear, anxiety, hatred, and intense emotions that populate the Astral Field of mass consciousness (delusions) as the “instinctual field of humanity” that we tune into and receive as ideas associated to our own emotional states, and act to co-create out of the delusions that plague humanity, without any real awareness that that is what we’re doing. We basically live our life from an unconscious state that relies on instinct as instant realities that produce automatic behaviors, and create out of error as a false idea about ourselves. We equate ourselves to the animal kingdom as our lower nature, and become a product of our conditioning. The devil, represented by the god named Pan, represents our lower-animal nature (half man and half goat), which is primarily instinctual in nature and unconscious in the most basic sense of not being aware of how you’re using your own mind, which is bestowed with higher-consciousness and the ability to create through choice and will by how we take control of our own mind and emotions, and operate it in a conscious (aware) and intentional manner.

reversed pentagram

The Pentagram, like all laws, cannot be properly understood as a singular, free-standing law, but rather needs to be viewed in its polar relationship as complementary aspects of the same operation, and by how it exists as apart of a continuous growth process. It must be viewed holistically and intuitively in terms of the full expression of the laws that precede it, that it naturally emerged out of, while still holding the latent potential of all laws that sequentially flow systematically from it. All laws originate out of the dyad (2 monads or spheres), which is considered the “parent number” out of which all reality emerges out of as a growth process. Because of this, the first “real number” is 3 (triad), which is the offspring as a combination of both masculine and feminine aspects, or the “inner and the outer”, which are complementary and act to stimulate each other, together form a unique variation as a combination or formula comprised of compatible aspects of both natures, in different quantities, degrees and potency’s (interference pattern). The numbers three through nine, three being the first “real number” as the offspring or combination formed by the dyad (mother and father), and ten being a repeat of one on a higher level or complete cycle (0) which are considered the base numbers and laws governing material and subtle reality, are seven. Seven is the number of the “virgin”, because it can’t be drawn in accurate and equal measurements, and so is expressed in a unique fashion each time it’s expressed. Seven is the number of creative expression.

 
Just as the Monad and Dyad represent a basic relationship as different aspects of the same thing, this same relationship continues as the offspring of laws that issue forth in pairs. The pentad (5) is complementary to the hexad (6), which is symbolized by the same idea of a star. The hexad comes in the form of the “Star of David”, and is formed by two triangles, positioned and moving in opposite direction as ascending and descending, or connecting the upper with the lower, just as the triad (3) and the Tetrad (4) represent the relationship between the inner and the outer as the triangle which forms a mirror image of itself outwardly, forming a diamond which is also a square. This same relationship correlated to the chakra system of the body as the 5th and 6th chakra, represent the spoken word (throat) that is formed into a reality in the imagination (3rd eye). The word as a sound vibration geometrically structures Astral Light into distinct patterns that the words represent. Our thoughts are words formed into living concepts which become the basis for our speech and our actions.

hex
These two laws, the pentad and the hexad, represent sound (whether silent or actual) that shapes Light into patterns as internal imagery that becomes the “lens we look through” (the pineal gland is a crystalline structure that reflects images on it’s surface) for seeing that same pattern-idea around us and connecting us to it in the outer world, where we act to awaken it through our very presence (consciousness). Then, after attracting and bringing the same pattern into an active state in others, we interact through it to produce the same pattern as an outer, joint experience. These two laws are represented in the Biblical phrase, “and the word was made flesh and walked among us.” To speak is to create, and to imagine is to see our creation as a possible reality. We create an inner reality that magnetizes us to that same reality around us. This is the power of our mind to literally shape our experience of reality, which in turn shapes us as the creator, main star, and witness to our own creation. Our imagination is how we create “memory” that forms our soul’s programming as a vibratory frequency that has both electric (perpetuating) and magnetic (attractive) properties. We are always the ones creating ourselves and our life by way of our own thinking.

Powers of the Mind: How to use your Mind to Transform Habits

energy designWe know that in order to use our mind to create experiences, we have to work by way of the laws that govern the mind. The mind operates according to these laws, and so to use it as a tool for creating in the physical sense by “operating it”, we can see these laws as giving us instructions for using our own mind in a deliberate manner. While we can easily see law in terms of “cause and effect”, or action creates an equal and like reaction, we often fail to recognize and even subtler idea as the operation of law, which is the unification of laws as aspects of the mind that produce physical reality as a “growth process” or offspring of an idea. In the mind’s ability to create or directly influence material manifestation, we are always working with the 3-fold nature of the mind as the higher conscious, the subconscious, and the self-conscious mind. In order to direct energetic processes to produce physical manifestations within our own being and self-created reality, these three aspects have to be in alignment and all working in a unified manner to produce different aspects of the same idea as a co-creation.
